  1. MS office should support Arabic in dictation

    I am wondering why Microsoft dictate does not support while support Chinese. There are around 1 billion speak Arabic.
    Arabic is important as Chinese.
    Google support Arabic.
    I am not working why ppl are moving to Google product.
    Google is always one step ahead from you (Microsoft).
    I am really annoyed. I am paying you and you should offer us what we need for our work.

  5. Edit Mode (view) in Word Online diffrent then Desktop Word

    Desktop Word and Word Online show the same Document differently when Edit mode is on (tab stops, picture not at same place and false fonts). We have a lot of Word Documents which was created in Desktop Word and will be edited in Word online. But the documentview is diffrent, tab stops are missing, picture is on wrong place, false fonts are showing. When i'm in View Mode it looks alright.

    For the Tabstops there is already a Uservoice

  9. Remove Floating Text Box for Track Changes

    When you work with Track Changes enabled in Word Online you also get text boxes when you hover over the changed text.
    These are extremely annoying as they don't let you see the document.
    Please remove them or at least allow the option to disable them.

  10. Please allow rotating of not only shapes but letters and symbols as well.

    Please allow rotating of not only shapes but letters and symbols as well. This will help business analysts figure coding for developers, I believe. Have this function for all Microsoft Office applications, not just one application. This will also help to develop a new coding language, reindeer, i.e. real entry internode desk escape restoration. I accredit this to Razi Choudhry, InshaAllah.

  15. Enable the In Front of Text option in Word Online

    It would be great if Word Online allows us to use the In Front of Text option for the image like Word client does.
    Even if we click Wrap Text> In Front of Text in Word Online, the image is currently placed in line with text. So, we have to do this in Word client if we want to insert the image in front which is inconvenient.

  16. Assignments

    I want to be able to see all my class assignments at once so I won't have to go back and forth between classes. It would be a real time-saver if this feature was installed because I have a lot of classes

  17. enable user to add in pronunciations to read allowed

    Allow users to add in pronunciations for unrecognised words in read aloud. I use read aloud to check text I write. Some Gaelic words have crossed over into English and it mangles them. It would help if I could programme in how to pronounce them. For example 'Taoiseach' is pronounced 'teeshock', 'Dáil Éireann' is pronounced 'Dall Air-an', etc. It also cannot cope with adding an s to indicate a decade. It is irritating having read aloud mange fixable words.

  19. Add "Insert Shapes" to Word

    I think it would be a really good idea to add "Insert Shapes" to Word, because most people use Word for reports, and I personally add flowcharts into reports when I can, so I think it would be really good to be able to make a digital flow chart or add shapes to Word.
